Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Corrupt Since Time Of COPE Chairmanship: Photos Reveal

Exposing the conflict of interest between the Justice Minister Wijedasa Rajapakshe and the Chairman of Avant Garde Nisssanka Senadhipathi, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka challenged Minister Rajapakshe to explain the truth regarding his personal relationship between himself and Nissanka Senadhipathi.

Avant Garde scandal 7The photographs which have emerged showing a close familial bond between Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and Chairman of Avante Garde were taken in January 2006.

Rajapakshe, a former member of the SLFP and a state minster of the Rajapaksa led administration had a close personal relationship with Senadhipathi during the time he was appointed as Chairman of the parliamentary watchdog COPE.

A few weeks ago Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe speaking to the media lied about his relationship with Senadipathi, going on record saying that he has had no dealings with the controversial businessman.

The photos released by Sarath Fonseka show a close relationship going beyond a proffessional one, with families of the duo seen together.

Following the 2005 presidential elections, President Mahinda Rajapaksa appointed him as the Minister of the State Banking Development in November 2005, however, he resigned thereafter in April 2006 and took over as Chairman of COPE in July 2006.

Rajapakshe said in several interviews that the Attorney General had consistently maintained that there was no criminal case against the Company.

However, earlier Colombo Telegraph revealed that Rajapakshe had lied, providing documentary proof that the Attorney Generals Department had advised that Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Senadipathi were both criminally liable for their hand in the Avante Garde scandal.

As Colombo Telegraph reported in March, there was high embarrassment for two people who were openly supporting the Avant Garde case. One was Tilak Marapana PC, who is counsel for Senadipathi and also advisor to the Anti Corruption sub committee of the government. Other is Wijedasa Rajapakshe, Minister of Justice. At a meeting of the committee, when Anura Kumara Dissanayake, the JVP leader and Champika Ranawaka, the JHU leader raised questions, Solicitor General Suhada Gamlath could not keep quiet. He disclosed that Marapana directed him not to object when an application is made to have the passport of Senadipathi returned for him to travel to Nigeria. Gamlath said he checked with Justice Minister Rajapakshe. He had said he was asked not to object and go slow with the case.

Law and Order Minister Tilak Marapana, last November resigned from his ministerial portfolio amidst calls to step down over the controversy surrounding the Avant Garde issue.

Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka today released twenty seven photos which shows the families of Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and the Avante Garde family in holidaying mood together in Disney Land dating back to January 2006. Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka challenged Minister Rajapakshe to explain the truth regarding his personal relationship between himself and Nissanka Senadhipathi.

According to Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka these pictures were taken by Nissanka Senadhipathi.

      Tilak did not resign because he felt he had committed a serious mistake. He said all what he did was right and he is being forced out. Everybody misunderstanding Tilak’s nature of resignation is expecting Wijeyadasa to resign. Wijeyadasa had said he is not not going to resign for the demand of criminals. Even if Wijeyadsa resign with same explanation, it is unwanted. These guys should be taken to court and put into prison for trying to save the criminals by distraughting criminal nature of their organization’s operation.

      He is not going to resign because of these photos. He mighty be thanking Fonseka to doing the FaceBook job for his on his 2006 year tour. He is going to defend that he took the photos with Nissanka 10 years ago. Yesterday New King and Old Brother prince jointly running the cartel called Lankave. The man who signed the drug container to be released from customs to his sun is the official consultant to the New King. Who needs to resign and what good expected to come out of it?

      If Nissanka Sendipathi was busy fighting terrorists in 2006, I’m just wondering how he got all that money and time to spend a mesmerising holiday in the US with his family!

      This country does not need to worry about all the reveals, so long Sarath Fonseka and JVP leaders are there.

      I am so pround of the two parties – they will not any rulers to let them hidden under the carpet.

      Wait and see, how Mr Medamulana will be caught soon.
      His offsprings and their murderous activities will have to be revelaed through the grand investigation of the murdered Rugby young man.

      Today, we hear all kind of good things than in the past – regardless of the status many of the high men are being called by INVESTIGATIVE bodies.

      Can we compare the times of MR with those of RW ? Not at all. It is like sky earth differences. People … be happy that we have RW and MY3 to take care of us today.

      This country has lost almost all leaders through the long held war. Today, if we loose the kind of today s goodies, we would not be able to avoid it becoming an another somalia.

      Thugs run by Rapakshes should be eleminated to the very same manner they did it with Ltters. Any kind of violence makers should NOT be given any kind of support by the people.

    Wijedasa was said to be discriminated at the school and the University for being ‘low class’ and ‘low caste’ by the authority, he implied this in a newspaper article and his election leaflets. Also he’s a follower of the crazy monk Samantha Badra.

    Wijedasa is trying hard to climb the social ladder as well.

      Listen to that Dasa when he addresses the issues to TV talk shows. He is not authentic at all. He could do a lot during the regime of MR. These men are there to destroy UNP.

      He is no better than the lawyer that nicely articulated the issues of high relevance to the stupid nation in terms of the fake brain injury and healing process of Rajapakshe boy – Duminda Silva. Remember ? I dont think this nation is reborn ?

      To my mind wijedasa Rajapakse is not clean. Pronto – the question is can we treat him in par with Kalu Albert of Anuradhapura.

      Who cares about his caste? He is definitely low class.

    This man was corrupt from his Press Council days under CBK.He was not straight in the COPE too though he shouted much.He was not happy being the minister in-charge of Bank matters under Rajapaksa as he could not engage in deals with any Bankers at that time. How on earth could a Minister of Justice of an honourable government, if it is, say that he will not allow a swindler like Gotabhaya, a thug, will not be allowed to be taken into custody, if he did not have any deal with the Rajapaksas of Medamulana. It is quite evident now, how he had been so pally with a man in the army, for that matter just a Major for that matter, who have had no connection with his profession or even in politically. It was evident that Wijayadasa, a renowned culprit, whose name appears in the birth certificate as Wijedasa, to call himself as Wijayadasa because of his low birth. Disgraceful Wijedasa.

    On a complaint to Maradana Police for being kept incommunicado in Dialogue head office by by Avantgarde security. The Avantegarde security personal were taken into custody and produced at Magistrates Court. It was Wijedasa Rajapakse PC who appeared on behalf of Avantgarde . Strangely, my friends lawyer failed to appear
    for reasons not known uptodate.

    In court Mr. Wijedasa Rajapakse PC justified the illegal detention by Avantegarde Security. As there was no one appeared on behalf of my friend
    to represent his version . The accused were discharged and the case was dismissed.

    A thief is a thief – high caste or low caste. No one is bothered about caste these days. He should have resigned along with Mr. Thilak Marapona.He is there to make use of Parliamentary privileges to escape. The Prime Minister should remove him from the Justice Ministry forthwith.

      ” Last 67 years , wealth of Sri lanka robbed by Tamils and Muslims. They all did this very secretly, now also doing very secretly.”

      This is too bad.

      Colombo Telegraph is the best place to expose those Tamils/Muslims who you believe secretly amassed wealth.

      Let hear more about them.

      Be a man/woman.

    It would be interesting to know who paid for the trip.

    Did not Senadhipathi retire with a rank of major? Was that his rank in 2006?

    Do majors have money for trips like this or was he already a business man at that time?

    Any more traveling pics?

    Wijedasa same way got fake master degree from Ruhuna University History Dept fake Professor Wawwagae. This Ruhuna University person allowed Wijedasa to write examination papers in his office and gave degree in wrong way. Ruhuna University must re-check all procedures and so called fake history professor must be sacked. Now he is Dean to Arts faculty.
